May 29th Mousehold Heath

Song Thrush
Another bird survey at Mousehold Heath this evening. The conditions were rather dull with misty scenes covering the city, but we still managed to record plenty of songbirds. Out of all of them, it was nice to hear so many song thrushes singing tonight. There seemed to be one calling in every section of the transect. Blackbirds and robins also joined in with the dusk chorus in good numbers. There were very few blue tits and great tits about though. We heard a couple of blue tit families and only a single burst of a great tit. Also tonight, we heard; chaffinches, dunnocks, blackcaps, chiffchaffs, a goldcrest, wrens, magpies, a jay and saw a flock of starlings and plenty of swifts. Towards the end of the survey, we saw a bat and heard the barking of either a fox or a muntjac deer.
